NAPO ‘GO Month’: Get Organized, Digitize Your Photo Memories

January 2012 marks the National Association of Professional Organizer’s (NAPO) 8th annual ‘Get Organized Month (GO Month)’.  Get yourself organized and digitize your precious photo memories this month.

Make sure those memories are preserved for future generations to enjoy.  Once those photos, slides, negatives and videos are digitized, share those memories with your friends and family easily and quickly.  Host online photo sharing and tagging on social networking sites including Facebook, interact with the people close to you with Google+ hangouts, and exchange tweets about your funniest, most memorable and favorite photos.  What better way to get organized than organizing your photos?

Photos are Everything.  We make yours last a lifetime and more.  Arguably, photos are the most important material objects we possess because they cannot be replaced.  Dave Malkoff, Emmy winning reporter with KTLA News in Los Angeles offers “the only irreplaceable objects in your house are your family photos and videos,” speaking about ScanMyPhotos.com.  

Once those analog images are lost, faded, moldy or damaged by natural disaster they are gone forever.  Don’t let that travesty happen to you.  Digitize all of those memories this month!  However, if some of your photos are already damaged, restore them and bring them back to life.

January is ‘GO Month’ and ScanMyPhotos.com supports NAPO’s efforts to get America organized.

GOing, GOing, Gone!
Kick Clutter to the Curb with a Professional Organizer During Get Organized MonthSM January 2012

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – December 29, 2011 – Helping homeowners and businesses with their New Year’s resolutions to get more organized, January marks the National Association of Professional Organizers’ 8th annual Get Organized MonthSM. This month-long initiative is dedicated to empowering individuals and businesses to retake control of the chaos by providing the resources, tools and educational programming to get started.


“The aftermath of the holidays is often a house full of clutter, and the office is in disarray with files and emails piled at capacity from budget planning season,” said Angela F. Wallace CPO®, President of the National Association of Professional Organizers. “Becoming more organized can help reduce stress, saves time and money, increases productivity and can enhance the quality of your life.”


In a NAPO conducted survey, 96 percent of respondents felt that they could save at least some time each day if they were more organized at home, and 91 percent felt they could be more efficient at work if they were better organized. Additionally, 71 percent indicated their quality of life would improve with more organization. Price Waterhouse Cooper estimates that workers spend nearly 50% of their time looking for information because it is not organized properly.


Professional organizers use tested principles and expertise to enhance their client’s lives by designing custom organizing systems and teaching personalized organization skills. During Get Organized (GO) MonthSM, select NAPO chapters and thousands of members will host public events including, Ask-the- Organizer panels, Organize to Economize in the New Year workshops, Shred-and-Organize events and much more.


“The beginning of a new year is a great time to jumpstart organizing your home or business,” said Wallace. “A NAPO member can help you with room-by- room assessment, organizing a move, improve digital filing processes and enhance business work-flow systems.”
